Vanity (Al-Zukhruf)
89 verses, revealed in Mecca after Consultation (Al-Shooraa) before Smoke (Al-Dukhaan)
In the name of Allah, the Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful
Ha-Mim. (1) By the Book that makes things clear, (2) behold, We have caused it to be a discourse in the Arabic tongue, so that you might encompass it with your reason. (3) and behold, it is in the Essence of the Book, with Us; sublime indeed, wise. (4) [O YOU who deny the truth!] Should We, perchance, withdraw this reminder from you altogether, seeing that you are people bent on wasting your own selves? (5) How many a Prophet did We send to the ancients, (6) but not a Prophet came to them, without they mocked at him; (7) Then We destroyed men stronger (in power) than these, and the example of the ancients has passed away (before them). (8) And if you should ask them, Who created the heavens and the earth? they would most certainly say: The Mighty, the Knowing One, has created them; (9) Who made the earth a resting-place for you, and placed roads for you therein, that haply ye may find your way; (10) And Who sent down water from the sky with a proper measure, so We revived a dead city with it; this is how you will be taken out. (11) He Who created all the pairs, and appointed for you ships and cattle whereupon ye ride. (12) so that you can sit upon their backs and then remember the Favors of your Lord and say: 'Exaltations to Him who has subjected these to us otherwise, we ourselves were not capable of it, (13) Surely we have to go back to our Lord." (14) But they have attributed to Him from His servants a portion. Indeed, man is clearly ungrateful. (15)
